    I'm struggling with what to post edit on my pictures as for brightness balance, colors, etc. If anyone has input or would like to edit, feel free!

    White balance, obviously. Clone/heal out the dirt on the floor as well.

    appreciate the C&C and I REALLY like how the #1 picture looks. Question now is... how would I do it with CS4?

    Are you shooting in JPEG or RAW?

    Usually and fortunately for that picture, I do have it shot in raw. I'm becoming familiar with the use of CS4, but I guess my problem is the "Why" of what I'm changing. When I see the original, I know the coloring seems to be on the orange side of things.

    If i remember correctly, it would have been incandescent. I most likely had the white balance on my camera set to something other then auto or for the correct indoor lighting. Most likely not having the forethought being a noob and all.

    Very easy thing to miss, I do it all the time myself. Double check whitebalance and ISO as these are the 2 most common to forget about and miss/ruin a shot because you didn't realize they were wrong from what you shot the night before.

    Thanks for those links. I looked through all of them and they gave me some really good tips and things to look for in shooting. My question is this then. If you were to set a custom WB and you took a picture of something you thought was white (or gray scale I guess...) and the picture came out warm or cold, how would you be able to get the camera to base a WB off of something that the camera thinks is white even though it came out warm or cool. Am I making sense? Like to me it seems like somehow it would be an endless cycle of the camera not using the right WB
